2003 Structure Report

Camp Business sent out surveys to companies who provide camps with a variety of different structures for use as cabins, temporary shelter, recreation, arts and crafts, performing arts, outdoor adventure… the list goes on.

Companies were asked to provide products and prices, sizes, typical uses, length of construction time, mobility, ease of build, amenities offered, most appropriate climates, the lifespan of the structure and support and warranty information.

Here we’ve published some of the key information to get you started — products and prices, sizes/dimensions, typical uses and each company’s contact information. Here, we’ve published products and prices, dimensions, length of construction time and contact information.

Given the product scope of many of the builders, the options and pricing plans available and the diversity of camp needs, we hope to have provided a good snapshot of what’s being offered to camps. Specific information will come from the manufacturer, and each company’s complete contact information is provided.

We’ll publish an annual update each year to keep you informed of changes and upgrades. Your input is valuable and we invite you to let us know if there’s any other information we can help provide.
